Why not try a little kindness - really, I'm not joking!

Dogs are driven by a few natural instincts, protection of their territory being one of the chief ones, and that's what these dogs are doing. Another major instinct is satisfying their hunger, so try giving them some treats from a safe distance. If you do that regularly and get closer and closer to them they'll soon get to associate you with food and welcome you with open jaws! A friend of mine was in the same situation some years ago, he'd bought a house at the end of a cul de sac but the houses at the start of the road had half a dozen aggressive dogs left outside all day long. They caused him problems on his motorbike until he started feeding the dogs and they were soon friends.

Try it, it works!

your few options seem to be and i am sure others have probably stated the same....

 

1. be better planned and get your refreshments or items earlier

2. buy another motorbike

3. go to another store even if further distance

4. talk to the thai owner, dont even go there with force intent - i have seen and heard of people

    killed here for as little as nothing. 

 

good luck

Try giving them some grilled chicken livers. Works for me every time. Better than beating them,

Walk with a good, sturdy bamboo stick.  Dogs know what it's for.

Carry a sturdy stick about 2 metres long. Just waving it at them confidently (not aggressively) should be enough to keep them away. After a while, the dogs may get used to you and leave you alone. I have used this strategy successfully several times.

i find giving a treat tossed to them will slowly make friends, won't happen for a few times but they get used seeing you and knows it's dinner...slowly after they are tamed you won't need to toss treats often...works 4me...

Public areas cannot be allowed to be their territory. If the owner does not lock them they need to be removed. I got bitten one day by a dog in Central Pattaya. Was no fun afterwards. He should send an email (as evidence) to the local government and tell them the situation. The neighbor does not seem to be his friend anyway otherwise he would care.

Why don’t you try with one of these bones?  You will get 2 more new friends for the rest of their lives.

You can buy dog snacks and give one snack each time you pass by. Then they will adore you. Don't talk to the owner because if anything happens to the dogs in the future then you will be the first person to blame.

I have heard that offering them food might just help to learn friendship.  I am an outdoor person and active. Myself personally have learned the aggressive dogs with owners and the soi dogs are cowards. I stand up to them and they are scared chickens. Yes sticks and rocks do keep distance

Buy a taser (they are illegal but are sold everywhere there are tourists) NOT to taser the dog but the sound is very scary to dogs and they will run from you.

I love dogs and have two of my own, but after 2 bites and one crash caused by dogs when I cycle every morning; I now carry a small one that is pretending to be a cigarette lighter and just press the button if dogs come near.

Up to you but you might just anger them more. Soi dogs much prefer flank of farang served on the bone.

 

On a more serious note, if a dog bites you, grab the dog and sink your teeth into its testicles. They won't do it twice. Works for me.

That is a great advice - thank you! But what if you find out after grabbing it that it is a female dog?

I used to be indifferent to dogs before I came here, now I hate the festering things. I am guilty of giving them tidbits though, purely to stop them snapping at my ankles when I cycle past them. Anybody seeing me would think I was a dog-lover.
